Hey neighbors! Still here cleaning and purging the shop. Taking a break and thought I'd check in.

Still a few roads closed around us because the bridges are gone. Darned inconvenient.
It's drying out but they are for casting more rain this weekend.
Maybe I'll get to mow again before the month is out.
Headed into town for pizza in a few.minutes.
Can't remember the last time I had pizza.

Gotta run take a shower before we go.

Later!

Good Morning Gang,
Coffee good again this morning, a little cool, but no rain today. We are supposed to get between 1 and 5 inches tomorrow, hope it goes around us.
Curtis, hope you enjoyed your pizza.
Well, looks like sightseeing plans to Pennsylvania are on hold, family health issues with possible surgery mean we will stay in Ohio for a while longer, waiting on Dr. appointments to see what their plans are before we leave.Got the new grey valve in the other day, it was a pain because one of the bolts hit the generator compartment and didn't want to come out, and the lines being ABS, you really can't pry on them, but it is done and working like it is supposed to. I think today I will tackle the galley valve. it is under everything, all the fresh water lines and the freshwater hose reel, I can barely get my arms into it, but it gives me something to do. Black valve will have to wait till I get pumped out in another week or 2.
Have a good day all,
Frank

I didn't have time this AM to post but just another day in paradise. Mirror image of yesterday , Sunshine , a light breeze off the lake and temps in the high 70s.............
(So here it is after work , if you can call it that!
Sculling around in a row boat moving float lines to mark ledges and rocks.)

Do NOT try to replace that black valve before you empty the tank !!
Hope your trip isn't on hold too long .

Good Morning All,


Finally done with the ACLS recertification and thank GOD it I over! I hate that test and it is the last time I will do it. When it comes due again in two ears I will be retired.


Coffee is good this am and sitting here relaxing listening to the rain. Just one of those soft rains that nourish the ground. I am sure the corn and beans are happy this am since we needed it.


Popeye, I bet you enjoy spending the day in any boat. Perfect job for someone who does. Do you always look for something like this when you do work camping? People can be a pain but sitting in a boat on the water is just simple relaxing.


Curtis, I bet when you get done cleaning out the garage you will be stunned at how much easier work will be as long as you didn't get rid of anything you need. Hope the rain stays off for you guys, I think you have had more than enough. When we left your place we saw areas they were doing road work where the base material they had put down had been washed away. At the time we thought there is no way they will be able to continue working on this thing because with a soggy base they can't get anything done. You have had rain since then and now washed out bridges? Wow. Gonna take a while.


Hope you all have a great day. We are supposed to go to a ball game tonight but not sure if it is still raining that we will go. What is the point?


Take care, Lynne

Thanks rvpopeye, we won't know anything for sure till at least the middle of July. I would rather postpone the trip, rather than have to do a bonzi run if surgery is needed.
The galley valve went smoothly, there was enough room for the pipes to moce, the hard part was getting both arms twisted around all the obstacles to remove and install the bolts. I definitely would NOT try to do the black tank valve without emptying and flushing the tank, especially since I have to lie at a lower level than the valve is.

Good Morning all, Pabell90, is that where the song Watermelon Crawl came from? Frank, glad the valves have gone well so far. Popeye, that's great you have a "job" that's fun . Lynne, I always disliked all the recerts I had to do for driving school buses, so I'm with you I'm glad I don't have to do'em anymore. Curtis, careful doing too much cleaning you'll need something that you threw out it always happens to me. Have a great day all.

When I was working I had to re-cert everything annually. What a pain. But the best part was, in most cases, I was the one doing the certifiying!
First Aid, CPR, Driving, Electronics Training, Hydraulics Training, Bucket Rescue, and rubber goods bi annually. Probably a few I've forgotten.


My problem in the shop cleanup is I keep finding parts for projects I've already bought the parts to make them with, but never got time to put them together.
So that's why it's taking so long to do the purging, and cleanup. As I come across them, I'm going ahead and building those past projects and getting them working rather than throw them out and starting over.

Kinda nice to find all the pieces and have them in one pile so a few minutes of cutting, drilling and welding and I have that out of the way, once and for all. Like my vice stands I posted on CLAC.

And I'm painting my roll around tool carts as I clean them off to match the rest of the tool boxes in the shop.
Even adding indoor/ outdoor carpet to the trays to make them look more professional.

It's getting there!

Good Morning, everyone! Coffee is gooood today! Got stocked up on my favorite again, so the good taste is back!
Found a very nice leather couch with a recliner at both ends for the home theater room, and a very nice surround system yesterday too! The couch is made right here in Thailand, and is a quality piece!
Pabell, welcome to the group! Good to have you here! We are all like family here, and on Terry's (Total rebuild) thread. Enjoy them both! And I hope everyone checks out your thread too! Lots of very smart people on here!!
Frank, I must have missed something ? Hope it is not too serious?
Bap, you must be very busy, have not heard from you in a few days?
Curtis, it is always fun to find those forgotten projects, and have the time to finish them!
Lynne, glad you are done with the tests, enjoy the nice rainy day!
It is the rainy season here, and I love the rainy days and nights!
Everyone, have a great day! Rail!

Good Morning All,


Good coffee this am. I love to sleep to the sound of rain. It's like a lullaby! I had a nephew who (piloted)? a fishing boat. He said he slept best with the sound of the diesel engine running and the waves rocking him. Sure miss him.


It rained most of the day but the fields sure appreciate it. Been looking at CG's within 2 to 4 hours of home to go on a 5 day camp at. Everyone seems a little different. Even found one that said it allows washing of RVs at it' site. That was interesting. Looking for a place where I can swim as I enjoy doing that. Want to have nightly campfires and just some relaxing, but if I can deoxidize a side or two while there, all the better.


Otherwise, going to fire up the genie today and test it. You all have a good day! Lynne

Good Morning Gang. I'm laying in bed and the sun is shining against the front of the house heating it up. Laying here in the quite listening to the.boards creak and pop as it warms up. I love my old house!

No coffee yet and Melissa is fighting with her phone alarm snooze button.

My bedroom faces the east and the light is trying to get around the shades. Cool way to start my Sunday Morning. Listen to my life get started.

I went to bed early last night, can you tell? Yea!

Usually on weekdays I'm up at the cracks of 10 to noon.

Porcha just jumped on the bed to say Good Morning!
